The food was amazing we had mainly fish dishes for starter and main and they were to the highest quality. The staff were great and if we are ever in Dublin again we will be beating a path to Dax.

French cuisine meets local Irish ingredients. Each dish presented complex flavors cooked to perfection. Wine pairings were fantastic. The menu was focused and imaginative. Service was fast. If you have a vegetarian dinning let them know ahead of time.

We enjoyed a beautiful 2 course early bird dinner last night, with tastes and textures to write home about. Our starters were the smoked salmon and the foie gras and our mains were the duck and the Atlantic cod. The mushroom and Parmesan crumb amuse bouche was a perfect appetiser.

I particularly appreciate that the early bird menu, by virtue of dining time and price, is not devalued on ingredients and quality in any way. The foie gras was the best I’ve tasted outside of Budapest and the use of fresh vegetables to accompany it was novel. My Atlantic cod was the most perfectly cooked piece of fish, falling off the fork with tenderness. Praise the Lord, a spoon is provided to allow for ‘mop up’ of the lobster sauce!

For the most part, service was excellent, but I noticed that we were the first of four tables seated in the alcove. Yet we were the last to be asked for our order. For 5-10 minutes it appeared we had been forgotten.

This didn’t detract from the enjoyment of the cuisine, hence I stay with five stars. A half bottle of Chablis accompanied our meal, chosen from a very comprehensive wine list.

With two coffees, the bill was €105.

We had lunch at Dax b cause we couldn’t get a table for dinner either night we tried. It was such an enjoyable lunch in every way. Every item we ordered was beautifully presented and the flavors were vibrant and pleasing. We had wine pairing which were all expertly matched and our service experience was superb. The ambience is excellent - we had a great experience and highly recommend this jewel.
